CoLab Is Here

On Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 12:08pm, a group of people gathered in a room armed with a whiteboard and three 14" pizzas. This gathering is the first of a weekly meet-up to be known as CoLab. It may not be clear what CoLab exactly is, so the question to each participant was the same: "What does CoLab mean to you?" (more…)

Ninthlink Commute: Craig
